Flag of South Sudan

The flag of South Sudan is one of the youngest flags, as this country entered the country only in 2011. The flag is composed of three horizontal stripes in black, red and green and a blue wedge in the left part of the flag. The individual stripes are separated by narrow white stripes and there is a yellow five-pointed star in the center of the wedge. The flag was originally the symbol of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army and was adopted as the national flag after the signing of the General Peace Treaty and the end of the Second Civil War. The black color represents the Sudanese nation, the red blood shed during the struggle for freedom, the green fertility of the land here and the blue vitality of the Nile River. The yellow star symbolizes the unity of the peoples of South Sudan.
